** ''Company Of Heroes 2'' features a Major as a deployable unit for the Americans. Deploying him is required in order to access the American heavy vehicle units, and he has the ability to order both recon flights and off-map artillery strikes. Additionally, despite his "squad" consisting of only two men in addition to himself[[note]]other American rifle units have at least four and typically five men each[[/note]] it still has the same two slots for equipping heavier weapons as any other squad - in fact, the first weapon picked up is usually grabbed by the Major himself!

* Major Smedley Darlington Butler was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor '''''twice''''': once in 1914 during the Vera Cruz expedition, and once in 1915 during the Haitian rebellion. He later retired from the US Marine Corps as a Major General. He also have the distinction of being the only badass in history to be named "Smedley". Did we mention that this man had a huge tattoo of the Marine Corps "eagle, globe, and anchor" symbol on his chest, starting at his throat and extending to his belly-button? He wrote a nice book which aired a lot of dirty laundry about the Bananna Republics the US used military action to ostensibly "help" during the early 20th Century. The title, ''War Is a Racket'' makes it quite clear which conclusion he was drawing about letting corporate and economic interests dictate military policy. Partially ironic, since every war in history is dictated in some (or whole) part by economic interests (yes, even [[WorldWarII that one]] was heavily influenced by economic realities).

* Subverted to a degree with Major Gates from ''Film/ThreeKings''. Although he ''is'' a decorated Ranger/Special Forces officer who is serving with Delta Force during the events of the film. He's also voracious, crass, extremely apathetic, and overall not what one imagines when they thinks of a fabled officer who holds the rank.
